    It happens. You slammed it in at the dinner party last night and got up this morning not feeling your best. 

    Many hangover cures work, with some being more effective than others. 

    If your hangover is centered around wine, you’ll need to look for remedies that focus on the chemicals and toxins in wine. 

    Tips & Tricks for Wine Hangover Cures

    It helps to know how different wines can affect you. Each type will affect every person differently, but for future reference, remember the following:

    • Red wines have tannins and histamines
    • Commercial wines have high levels of sulfites

    With that in mind, you can experiment with the following tips and tricks to help you figure out what’s most effective for you.


    Drinking water following an evening of drinking is always a good idea, regardless of the drink you consumed the night prior. Of course, the classic H2O is the best choice. Still, If you’re having trouble getting water down, you can also explore other beverages like sparkling water made of coconut or electrolyte tablets such as Nuun. The key is drinking water slowly to replenish your cells frequently.


    You’ve put your body through the wringer… therefore, having a night of rest will allow it to recover. If you can, rest during the day or take a couple of small naps to aid in recharging your body and healing faster.

    Coffee in moderation

    Generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to drink more diuretics, like coffee. But if coffee is part of your daily routine in the morning, skipping it can cause worse headaches. If you must, limit the amount to a single cup and ensure you take plenty of water with it.

    Eat Probiotic-Rich Foods

    The Guardian reports that alcohol could work to alter the gut microbiome. The wine industry is known to contain several microbes but none of which aid in human digestion. Yogurt, kimchi miso, kefir, and kombucha all are rich in probiotics. They also boost your body’s supply of beneficial bacteria that aid digestion.

    Try for Antihistamine

    Since histamines cause the various symptoms you could be experiencing in these hangovers, using an antihistamine can aid in relieving symptoms. 

    An over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine, such as Aspirin or ibuprofen, is generally a good option. 

    Always consult your physician before using any supplement or over-the-counter medication since they can cause adverse reactions when used with other medications or alcohol in your system.

    Try for an Antacid

    If a stomach upset is your main symptom, an antacid can help. Based on Vinepair, the consumption of white wine, specifically white wine, may help digestion as it releases more gastric acid. But, drinking excessive gastric acid can cause severe heartburn. Antiacid tablets, like Tums, will neutralize all that acid and allow you to feel better.

    Fresh Air and Mild Exercise

    It can be challenging to get motivated to do any activity in a bad mood. Going outside for fresh air and a little exercise can help awaken your body and assist in hitting your reset key. Doing sure your workout is moderate in the event of dehydration is crucial, so go for a stroll and carry a water bottle with you.

    Eat well

    Even if you’re looking forward to eggs benedict and bacon with greasy sides, they’re not precisely the nutrients your body needs during its hangover state. 

    The Cleveland Clinic recommends sticking to a reasonably simple diet, like the BRAT (bananas, rice, berries, and applesauce and toast) diet, so as not to upset stomachs further. If you can eat a good breakfast, eating foods such as salmon, which is high in B vitamins, can reduce inflammation.

    Make herbal teas

    The more hydrated you’re, the better. Moreover, herbal teas can also provide therapeutic properties that can ease sufferers of hangovers from wine. If you’re struggling with nausea or stomach upset,

    Try making an herbal tea with ginger to ease your symptoms and improve digestion. Chamomile tea is a different drink that hydrates you and has the additional advantages of calming your body and mind.


    How do you deal with a wine Hangover?

    Common hangover symptoms are fatigue, having a slight headache or stomach upset, and feeling thirsty. However, hangover symptoms from wine aren’t the same. They can be triggered by lower drinking levels than other alcohols and could be more serious. This is especially the case when drinking red wine. Symptoms are:

    • Migraine headaches can be similar to regular headaches but much more severe. The tannins and other components in red wine may cause migraines for some individuals. It could happen after just one glass.
    • Congestion – sulfur compounds that specific wineries use for the preservation of both white and red wines may cause congestion for sensitive people.
    • Stomach issues. The histamines in red wine may cause certain people to suffer from problems with digestion, such as diarrhea. Others suffer from heartburn caused by white or red wine.

    Steps for Hangover Prevention

    If you’re feeling bad the next day, you’re likely wondering what was going through your mind. Be sorry for yourself and vow to improve your body the next time by taking these steps to prevent it from happening again.

    • The best approach is to reduce your consumption of alcohol. This is the most effective method to avoid a hangover after a wine drink the next day. You can spread your drink out throughout the evening or swap any other drink for an alcohol-free alternative.
    • Hydrate throughout the day and in the evening. If you know that you will be drinking later in the day, continuing through the night with a healthy amount of water will assist. It is equally important to consume an ounce of water with each bottle of vino. Game changer.
    • Have a delicious dinner. Consuming any alcohol drink with a empty stomach is not a wise option. Instead, ensure you have healthy, nutritious food items within your body before you drink.
    • Do not drink red wine. This is based on a case-by-case basis. For some, red wine is the same as white wine. Some people find that one drink of red wine could cause hangover-related symptoms, and it’s best to stay clear of it completely.
